I had a lovely time at the convention this year. Since it was my first year of horse to bring something to everything I could. I came into Boston a day early to help with the art show. The art show staff was amazing and so sweet. After the art show set up, there was a beautiful staff dinner and a lovely reception. I was really happy that I helped with set up. I decided to cosplay every day of the convention. On day one I did a Gothic Lolita look dedicated to black butler. The skirt, lanyard, bracelet are from Depop and the shirt, hair bow, and tie were from a very inexpensive rainbow style store. The boots are from Demonia and all make up was black to finish the Gothic style look of the show.
Aside from my Fish Mooney & Zoë Washburne, I dressed in to geek chic looks. One was a Marie Antoinnette inspired ensemble and the other was a Doctor Who inspired look. For the Maria Antoinnette look, I assembled multiple flower patterns prices with a simple black dress and white tutu. This was accented with my white wig and multiple flower accessories. The Doctor Who skirt was purchased from Depop and the shirt is from fan plus friend. The black hat and bell necklace were picked up from rainbow. I wore this when we went to eat since I did not want spill on my all white Fish Mooney. Her medical pants, head wrap and jacket were originally purchased from Amazon. But the medical jacket was not the correct style and had to be restructured to mimic her jacket. Please note the buttons are glued on since they are only for aesthetics. And the SafeTStep shoes were on sale from Payless.com.
Though very nervous, I did compete in the masquerade and was judged for craftsmanship plus presentation. For Zoë Washburn, I could not find the fabric for her memorial address. Therefore I found stripes infinity scarves that resembled the pattern, picked them apart to create the pattern and used my new dress form. The shoes were from Payless and candle plus bracelet are from Amazon. To show my documentation, I made a keepsake book for the wash baby . I am proud to say that I won the "Simple but Elegant" in craftsmanship and "Honorable Mention for most tragic" (sad) in presentation.
